On October 11th, Food Studio joined forces with Growlab Oslo to host a dinner on behalf of Kinfolk. The theme of the evening was A Messy Meal: Embracing Wabi-sabi in the Everyday. It was not hard to find the right place for the Kinfolk dinner. Food Studio’s recent location is one of the quirkiest places in central Oslo. A derelict factory building where the city’s deranged and destitute used to work. The spacious halls and narrow corridors still tell their tale.
To celebrate the end of ØKOUKA 2014, everyone was invited for a final feast at Bygdøy. ØKOUKA, the ecological week in Oslo, was filled with workshops, lectures and meetings between city dwellers and farmers. Bygdøy Kongsgård and the community gardens at Hengsengen are one of the finest examples in Oslo where these two worlds meet.
October 2011 we visited Nordgard Aukrust Farm in Lom. The invitation to experience the offerings of autumn, as well as a cooking course with Maaemos’ Esben Holmboe Bang tempted Food Studio to Nordgard Aukrust Farm during the past harvest season.
